GCSE Revision mats - MathedUp!

Some of this time, quite rightly, should be dedicated to exam paper practice but I find that the repetitiveness of this often leads to stale lessons and it is difficult to monitor how much progress students are actually making. My current group of brilliant, hard working, year 11s are quite mixed ability with some students who are working towards securing a C grade and others aiming for Bs, As and A*s. I have put together a set of graded revision mats (with a bit of help from @climbingjack and @zebfriedman) that cover most areas of GCSE mathematics from F to A* grade.

I have had these printed back to back on A3 paper and laminated and are being shared across the department. The format of these allow for a flexible resource so they can be adapted to how best they suit your students. Click here to access all the mats and recording sheets.

Surds - Mathematics GCSE Revision

They are therefore irrational numbers. The reason we leave them as surds is because in decimal form they would go on forever and so this is a very clumsy way of writing them. The video below explains that surds are the roots of numbers that are not whole numbers. Surds. When we can't simplify a number to remove a square root (or cube root etc) then it is a surd.


Example: √2 (square root of 2) can't be simplified further so it is a surd Example: √4 (square root of 4) can be simplified (to 2), so it is not a surd! Have a look at some more examples: The surds have a decimal which goes on forever without repeating, and are Irrational Numbers. How did we get the word "Surd" ? Well around 820 AD al-Khwarizmi (the Persian guy who we get the name "Algorithm" from) called irrational numbers "'inaudible" ... this was later translated to the Latin surdus ("deaf" or "mute") Week 9. Resources for Engineering > Algebra from mathcentre. Just the Maths (A.J.Hobson) "Just the Maths" authored by the late Tony Hobson, former Senior Lecturer in Mathematics of the School of Mathematical and Information Sciences at Coventry University, is a collection of separate mathematics units, in chronological topic-order, intended for foundation level and first year degree level in higher education where mathematics is a service discipline e.g. engineering.

Completing the square is an algebraic technique which has several applications. These include the solution of quadratic equations. In this unit we use it to find the maximum or minimum values of quadratic functions. Resources for Engineering > Algebra from mathcentre.

Trying to revise using past papers usually means going from one topic to another and not covering any of them in detail.


The following FREE booklets contain many of the question types asked since 2008, but arranged by topic so you can get lots of practice concentrating on one topic at a time. Great for revision. They can also be used to test understanding when the end of a topic is reached. Mr Collins Mathematics Blog: GCSE Revision Sessions - Passport to a [insert grade]! I have recently been completing a series of documents for a new and exciting project the TES Maths Panel have been working this space for more information!

Mr Collins Mathematics Blog: GCSE Revision Sessions - Passport to a [insert grade]!

Whilst I have been doing this project, which has involved me searching through the resources on the TES I have come across a bloody brilliant idea... mrslack_maths' Passport to... You can download the resource here. I believe this resource would be great for revision sessions and this is exactly what I've been in the process of planning for next Tuesday with Y11.

So, taking inspiration from Mr Slack Maths I have created my own version of the passport resource for the students I will be taking for the revision session. Passports. I originally stumbled upon Maths Passports when searching for ideas for departmental displays.


I was lucky enough to find lots of pictures on twitter and came across Mr Collins Blog. I took the idea of the passports and edited them to make it work for my school. The videos link to several youtube maths tutorials, which I am hoping to gradually change with videos of my own. (Pupils seem to prefer videos made by their own teacher). I have also attempted to incorporate @MathedUp's passport mats within the design. Students in year 11 are encouraged to collect their passports and scan for success within the Maths department. The aim is for all year 11 students will fly to success and reach their final destination of their aspirational grade.

Smear the butter with your hands all over the bird. Put the chicken in a roasting tin that will accommodate it with room to spare. Season liberally with salt and pepper and squeeze over the juice of the lemon. Roast the chicken in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Turn off the oven, leaving the door ajar, and leave the chicken to rest for at least 15 minutes before carving.

Carve the bird to suit yourself; I like to do it in the roasting tin. Exercise & the Immune System (2): Releasing the Psoas & Spine - The Tender Foodie - The Tender Palate.
